Gabbeh rugs are hand knotted by women from the Qashqai and Luri tribes of south-western Iran. The rugs are woven using thick hand spun wool which is often left un-dyed, the use of both natural and chrome dyes allows bright colours to be used, usually depicting animals or people. This piece has a 20 mm thick lustrous pile, with "abrash " or variation across the piece. The rug is out of square as can be seen in the main image but we feel this does not detract from the charm of the piece. Originally made for their own use, these rugs were not exported in any quantities to the West until the 1980's as they were thought to be too crude to be worth trading. Fortunately their artistic value has been recognised by many prestigious designers and avid rug collectors, the rugs are well suited to contemporary interior design as well as classic traditional room settings. This is a one of a kind rug and is available to buy in-store and on-line.
We recommend the use of Teebaud anti-slip underlay with your rug.
This reduces the potential for trip hazards by minimising slippage.
It will prevent rucking, makes vacuuming easier, feels better to walk on, provides heat insulation, improves sound dampening, and reduces any possibility of colour transfer from your rug to the floor surface beneath.
See our Teebaud Anti-slip Underlay for more details
Vacuum regularly, the heavier the traffic the more frequent you should vacuum.
Use a suction only type vacuum cleaner or tool attachments, vacuums with rotating brushes are not recommended as they can damage the edges of the rug.
High Loops and Sprouting Tufts
Long threads, high tufts or high loops may appear above the pile surface.
These can be trimmed to the surrounding pile height with a sharp pair of scissors without any detriment to the appearance or wear ability of the rug in anyway whatsoever.
Stains and Spillage
It is important to deal with any spills quickly, NEVER rub a spill.
Blot up any excess liquid using absorbent paper towels or a clean white terry cloth towel.
For all stains, we recommend a Specialist cleaning service.
